DAY TRIPS FOR ONLY FJ$94
Escape to the tropical highlands via a scenic 1.5-2 hour drive from Suva, to enjoy the “unplugged” Namosi Eco Retreat or to see majestic waterfalls nestled in the picturesque, rocky mountains.
Namosi Eco Retreat offers two daytrip options to the tropical highlands of Fiji:
- Twin-Waterfalls Trek
- Highlands Digital-Detox Eco-Day.
Each daytrip has the same price of FJ$94 per person (minimum 2 people) including meals but excluding transport transfers. Both daytrips are suitable for cruise-ship passengers. Daytrips depart from Suva (2-12 people; sorry we don’t take large groups as we prefer to give guests a personal experience).
These daytrips take you into the interior of Fiji. You will travel up the mountains through tropical forest and amazing scenery, crossing rivers and passing through remote villages. In the Namosi Province you enter ‘old’ Fiji where you meet people living in remote communities without internet or mobile phone access, and who are still reliant on subsistence farming to living a simple, happy and healthy lifestyle. All the villagers farm vegetables and root crops plus they catch prawns and eels from the river for daily food to eat. Here in Namosi you will hear about the history, the struggle, the lifestyle and the never-ending sound of laughter echoing through the mountains from the locals’ famous Fiji humour.
TWO (2) DAYTRIPS
- DAYTRIP – OPTION 1: NAMOSI TWIN-WATERFALLS TREK
Experience two waterfalls in the untamed highlands of Namosi. The first waterfall has a refreshingly cool rockpool for swimming while the second has an amazing 80foot water drop. Cruise-ship passengers are driven directly to the waterfalls (there is limited time to enable hiking), which are about a 10-minute walk from the nearest road. Enjoy a few hours under the canopies of the trees and waterfalls, before enjoying lunch beside the waterfall. (Daytrippers with more time have the option of hiking to the waterfall, which is 2-2.5 hours trek from Namosi Eco Retreat.)
- DAYTRIP – OPTION 2: HIGHLANDS DIGITAL DETOX ECO-DAY
Get back to basics, and return to nature at this “unplugged” authentic Fijian retreat (no electronics or mobiles phones – only a solar powered emergency phone). Escape to the untamed mountains, cliffs and deep valleys of Fiji’s interior, swimming in the river with the Bilibili bamboo raft, hiking (mountain or riverside), eating locally harvested crops and authentic food, and more.
All inclusive: The FJ$94 daytrip fee includes 25% government taxes, other government fees, lunch and refreshments, Local Guides, village entry fees, and all other costs.
